Answer: Sefer Ha Ikkarim

The Sefer ha-Ikkarim (Book of Principles) was written in the 15th century by the Jewish ethicist Joseph Albo.

Allow me to ludicrously summarize his life's work: His goal was to outline the principles ( ha-Ikkarim ) necessary for a divine ethic to exist. He reduced these principles to three: God exists, God has revealed his existence, and God has revealed what behaviours he expects from.
